breastforce:

the origons of Ouija boards are funny if you think about it like they’re part of an another country (China)’s ancient history that was practiced until one emporer decided “You know what this is probably a bad idea” and banned the practice. 

then centuries later an old buisnessman comes along and is like “I’m going to take this and market it as a toy to children.”

Which is the exact plot of Yu-Gi-Oh

Brooklyn King ready for duty, Marshall Pearson! Let’s take ‘em out.
____
Ok so Pacific Rim is the greatest movie ever and I adore everything that has to do with it especially the whole Drift Compatibility aspect. It’s set a new level of intimacy for characters, so I felt like abusing my otp a little.
Harvey was one of the best damn Jaeger Pilots in the US when his jaeger and copilot, Scottie, were taken out on a mission. A few years later he stumbles upon Mike Ross, a scrappy kid trying to make a living in the California Shatterdome. He had lost his friend Trevor and his grandmother in a Kaiju attack a few years earlier. They bond over their NEw York roots and love of Movies and realize that they have a great compatibility. Harvey tests the theory by sparring with Mike and then comes up with the crazy idea to pass Mike off as a trained Jaeger Pilot, so that Harvey can get back in on the action. Marshall Jessica Pearson catches on pretty quickly, but their Drift is off the charts so she lets it slide.
Donna is their Flight Command (ie Tendo Choi), Rachel is head of the Science Department, and Jessica is Marshall of the Shatterdome.
Together Mike and Harvey pilot the Mach 4 Jaeger Brooklyn King.
And Harvey would totally be one of those kinda douchey pilots who thinks he’s hot shit, so i’m not gonna apologize for making him look like a complete tool. Mike forgives him though, so I can too.

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey
